why washington works so badly for the rest of the country, the book explains that it works extremely well for its most important citizens, the lobbyists. the permanent government of the united states is no longer defined by party or branch of government, but rather by a profession that has comfortably encamped around the federal coffers. the result, according to many measures, is that washington has become the wealthiest city in the united states. leibovich describes a city in which money has trumped power as the ultimate currency. lobbyists hold the keys to what everyone in government, senator or staffer is secretly searching for, a post-government income. in 1974 only 3% of retiring members of congress became lobbyists. today that number is 42% for members of the house and 50% for senators. the result is bad legislation. look at any bill today and it is a gargantuan document filled with thousands of giveaways. the act that dree atd the federal reserve in 1913 was only 31 pages home. the 1933 glass steeg al legislation was only 37 pages long. the dodd-frank bill is 848 pages plus th

that raised alarm bells across washington was an intercepted communication from the leader of al qaeda, it was to a man in zemin. he was just appointed as his number two. that provides an unprecedented al qaeda link between the core al qaeda from the 9/11 era of attacks and the yemen al qaeda. i want to explain to everyone why we're talking about this because it's so important. we had this information here at cnn about the intercept over the weekend and decided not to report the details because we discussed it with u.s. officials and there were significant concerns about attaching his names to it. the intercept said do something, do something now. let us be clear and transparent to our viewers, a number of news organizations have reported this information. this is now out in the public arena. so we feel now we can decide to report it. there was -- there is a lot of concern about this now it looks like he has made his move with al qaeda in nyemen. it was is al qaeda in yemen that has been able to reach out and touch. think of that detroit airliner bombing. >> that terror group has signi
